dude its my parents house ....theve done ok concidering we lived in a trailer and shit when i was born and crappy houses till 96....dad never got a college degree and had to work his ass off so he could have this place ....we got this place cheap as they were just starting to build here when we moved here , it was like country so we got this for what you in NJ would pay for a old crusty house (like 85k)

myself ...i barely have a pot to pee in ....but i do my best ....one day ill be able to afford a apt ...school is kicking my arse finnacially , im paying for all of it on my own ...they saved up for me to go but i wanted them to spend that on my brother going to college so i joined the airforce and got my own college money ...

Ya, digital cameras are good because they make the most of any lighting situation, unlike film where it would be underexposed in most situations. Good detail on that '59. I wouldn't mind seeing the underside and engine if you're just playin' with the camera.

Stoneage_Caddy
04-05-05, 11:57 PM
worst part about it ...hood doesnt open and the underside is crude at best ....front doors and rear door open ...so does the casket ....and its got a nice pillow ....id rather have a closed casket and a opening hood ....but oh well

matching flower car goes on sale soon

Kennedys contential is also out there ...when i get my own pad ill start that collection (presidential cars)

Nope JFK's 61 they have 2 versions the configuation he was shot in and the retrofitted one after the assaination ...in real life they are the same car , so the open version doesnt exist , they (fomoco) took the car he died in and refitted it to be a fortress on wheels ...I think the car was leased by the Govt for the sum of one dollar ...

I thought the one he was shot in was put in a museum or something? You would think for forensic/ballistic evidence because of the unsolved case they would have left it alone..

I shudder when I think of what I have spent on this computer. And for no apparent reason honestly. Generals is an awesome game, as is the Zero Hour expansion, and I usually don't like RTS games.

so it is like "warcraft"?

buddy of mine had that warcraft , i loved it ....i led full scale attacks on enimy camps and everything ....really gets my "armchair general" thing going .....

He also built a computer one night while i was over there ...we were boath drunk off our arses but the computer started up and ran ...so i guess there pretty easy to put togther ...so im thinking "hey if i can rebuild a engine and he could put a cpu together drunk " .....maybe i can build one .....then again prolly wont be as reliable as a dell

It's like the previous releases on Warcraft, not World Of Warcraft. There really isn't much to putting together a custom computer, just know that heat is your enemy. And you want to pick parts that work well together. As for reliability, I haven't had one single problem with my computer and it's pushing two years old. I will never buy a manufactured comptuer again.

Why does a house in Florida need a fireplace?

I'm waiting for an answer to my question.

How many times have you used the fireplace? How cold was it? How cold can it possibly get in Tampa?

I ask this because I've built two houses (actually one house and a massive addition). The fireplaces set me back a minimum of $1500 each.

I NEVER would have done it if I didn't have to. The market today demands fireplaces.

The house I grew up in didn't have fireplaces. I don't get it.

Stoneage_Caddy

thats why its there ....we ran it this winter about 12 times ....it did get down to 26 degrees at one time down here .....works well , we run it and shut off the heat in the house ....i forget how much it was when dad had this place built , wasnt bad ....

alot of people that live down here are front he north , so they want the fireplace when they buy a house , they never realize they dont need it ....thus the market for a house with a fireplace is much beatter ....
